Leeds fans should be fuming over transfer admission from 25-year-old, leaves concern over future


Leeds United had something of a hit-and-miss transfer window over January, and there are still questions to be asked over those who arrived at Elland Road during the winter market.

While the likes of Adam Forshaw can be considered a success already, most of the new signings are yet to prove their worth to the Whites, although many have not been given the chance to deliver as a result of injury or other issues.

One man who has been handed an opportunity to prove himself, and that the jury is still out over, is left back Laurens De Bock, who was a £1.5million signing from Belgian side Club Brugge.

He has endured a difficult start to life in Yorkshire, having made seven appearances so far but failing to have the desired immediate impact with a series of poor performances which have already left him fighting for his role in the senior side after an extended run as first choice.

Now there should be even more concern over what the future has to bring after he admitted he was pretty satisfied with how his move to Leeds has gone so far.

As quoted by the Yorkshire Evening Post, De Bock said: “It was not easy to come here in the winter because everyone was already attuned to each other but all in all the adjustment went smoothly.”

If this is what the 25-year-old considers smooth, then what hope can there be for his future displays?

The club have won just one game since Boxing Day and De Bock has to shoulder part of the responsibility for that, so to state that he is happy with how things have gone should have the Elland Road faithful fuming.

If anything he should be wholly frustrated with both his own and the team’s performances, and admitting that would endear himself to fans.

Instead he is coming across as ignorant to just how disappointing the Whites’ situation is, and that can only be a worry to those watching Leeds week in, week out.
